Silverlight is not recognized by Netflix on Win 7, IE9 64Bit


  • It should have been a straight forward easy experience but even a fresh installation of SL is not recognized by Netflix on IE9 64Bit. Can you imagine the furstration when all I am trying to do is watch a movie? Where does microsoft thing this will get them in the browser battle? I do not know.

  • Hi. Please use the 32-bit version of IE9 to access Netflix. Support for 64-bit browsers will be added with Silverlight 5, and a separate 64-bit runtime needs to be installed for that; until then, in Silverlight 4 (the current official release) ther is no support for 64-bit browser versions.
